Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: South East (24 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: The department has robust governance to effectively monitor progress of airspace modernisation, alongside the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). My Officials have engaged with Heathrow Airport whilst they move towards their Stage 2 gateway under the CAP 1616 process. A decision on whether to approve changes to the notified airspace design is made by the CAA in accordance with the airspace...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Biofuels (23 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: The government’s Biomass Strategy, published in 2023, analysed biomass availability and recognised that sustainable biomass is a limited resource and there is uncertainty around future availability for use in the UK. It concluded its use should be prioritised where it offers the greatest environmental, economic, and social benefits. This analysis has been built on in the government’s...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Aviation: Fuels (23 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: We are supporting the transition to sustainable aviation fuels by taking action to build supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) and secure demand. The SAF Mandate will secure demand for SAF, by obligating the supply of SAF in the overall UK aviation fuel mix. The Mandate will require 2% of UK jet fuel to be made from sustainable sources in 2025, 10% in 2030 and 22% in 2040. It will...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Department for Transport: Disability (23 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: DfTc was reaccredited as a Disability Confident Level 3 status “leader” in April 2024. There are no officials working directly to support this scheme. The activities that support the scheme are embedded within our HR policies and practices and the broader accountabilities of HR professionals’ roles. The Disability Confident reaccreditation process includes an assessment of the...

E-scooters: Deaths and Serious Injuries (22 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship, Mr Dowd. I do not think it will be my last debate, because I have a speech to make tomorrow, but we are all awaiting an announcement. I am glad that it is delayed, because I know we have the nation’s undivided attention here. I congratulate the hon. Member for Huddersfield (Mr Sheerman) on bringing this important debate to Parliament, on...

E-scooters: Deaths and Serious Injuries (22 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: Clearly I agree. All road deaths are absolutely tragic, but that is why it is so important that we get it right. I will come to some of the hon. Gentleman’s comments, but these scooters are completely illegal at the moment. Anything we do to regulate them or legislate on them would be legalising something that is currently illegal; presumably that would make them more widely used. That is...

E-scooters: Deaths and Serious Injuries (22 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: The hon. Member makes a very valid point. If we do legislate, one thing we would want to look at is whether we should require insurance or not. Of the 22 countries that we have looked at that have legislated on this issue, 18 do not require insurance and four do. We do not require insurance for pedal bikes; if we did so for e-scooters, there would be a question about why we do not require...

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Motor Vehicles: Lighting (22 May 2024)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Unmanned Air Vehicles: Armed Forces and Police (22 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: Legislation already allows for police to fly drones beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) when certain conditions are met. Additionally, the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and the National Police Chiefs’ Council are considering developing a regulatory framework to support police drone use, and the Department for Transport will consider any recommendations they have, including whether any...

Due to logistical and operational reasons the type of vehicles deployed at each department can vary on a daily or weekly basis. The GCS fleet currently has 122 vehicles, 58 (48%) of which are vehicles made in Britain.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Department for Transport: Food (21 May 2024)

Contracts include a requirement to comply with the mandatory standards of the Government Buying Standard (GBS) for food and catering services.

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Alternative Fuels (20 May 2024)

Written Answers — Department for Transport: Electric Vehicles (17 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: Government grants have been in place for over a decade to help reduce the up-front purchase price of electric vehicles, with over £1.8 billion in grant funding provided since 2011. Grants remain available for vans, trucks, wheelchair accessible vehicles and taxis. Favourable tax benefits also remain in place to support the transition to EVs. These policies are working. March 2024 saw the...

Transport: Air Safety (16 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: Both I and departmental officials engage proactively with industry, including Boeing, Airbus and other manufacturers, on aviation safety. The Civil Aviation Authority, the independent safety regulator for the aviation sector, also engages regularly across the industry. I should point out that we have some of the safest skies in the world. The fatal accident rate of UK airlines is among the...

Transport: Air Safety (16 May 2024)

Anthony Browne: I absolutely agree with the hon. Member that they are amazing companies with huge operations in the UK and enviable safety records. Not one of the 171 Boeing 737 MAX 9s operating globally operates in the UK or from the UK, so there was no need to ground them. The Department for Transport liaises closely with American authorities. The CAA follows very closely the work of the US Federal...
